This 'recording'...... Are you talking about ripping a CD? IE: Putting a CD in your PC and capturing the music to your computer?
Winamp or Windows Media Player will do this for you, just dont let them connect to the internet.
WMP will, if allowed, search the internet for information about a CD when ripping it. If it believes it to be copy write protected it will not allow you to copy that CD.
If there is no internet connection, then the software being used, be it Winamp or WMP, cannot connect, therefore cannot confirm copy write.
There are settingS in the programmes to disable the 'checking' procedure. They can be found under the 'TOOLS' feature.
